Indigenous women traveled 3,000 miles to save an Alaskan forest from Trump By Nicole Javorsky on Sep 23, 2019 ( Grist Magazine)

There is no group more vulnerable to the destruction of the Tongass than indigenous groups who hunt, fish, and gather in the forest, especially given the importance of the forest in fighting climate change. “Everything that we harvest off the land is being changed because of this global warming issue,” Culp explains. “It doesn’t seem like anybody is screaming the sky is falling and it is.”

Residents to embark on historic Tlingit trade route
By Sarah Chatta, Chilkat Valley News, August 8, 2019

This month, Haines residents Tim Ackerman and Mike Bott will embark on a nearly 200-mile route mapped out by legendary Klukwan chief Kohklux exactly 150 years ago. The men say that this will be the first time in 128 years that a traverse of the trail will be documented.

Haa Kusteeyí Celebration 2019 (Official Website)

As long as the Tlingit have lived on the shores of the big inland lakes, July has been a season of coming together and celebrating. A warm season where living for a short time was a little easier; a time to reconnect with family and friends, meet the new born, engage in courtships, tell stories and put the hardships of winter behind. A time to strengthen the ties of Tlingit Culture — Haa Kusteeyí.

​Haa Kusteeyí is a Dha Kha Celebration which include 3 different First Nations; Taku River Tlingit from Atlin (TRT), Teslin Tlingit Council from Teslin (TTC) and Carcross/Tagish First Nation from Carcross, Tagish and Squanga (C/TFN).

"Many dozens of canoes from around the Pacific Northwest Coast and Salish Sea arrived Wednesday at the Lummi Nation, near Bellingham WA, in the Tribal Canoe Journey, an annual event celebrating the cultural revitalization (especially for youth) of "traveling the highways of the ancestors." Some of the canoes traveled 400 miles over three weeks. The skippers and other crew asked permission to come ashore, and then hoisted the canoes to walk ashore. (Also see my album of videos.) There will now be five days of Protocol (open to the public), as each tribal canoe family presents songs and dances from their homeland. I'll post photos of Protocol soon. #PaddleToLummi2019" Zoltán Grossman

The Eight Artists Who Sought to Withdraw Their Work From the Whitney Biennial Reverse Course Following Kanders’s Resignation BY Eileen Kinsella, Artnet News July 25, 2019

Prominent works by Nicole Eisenman, Nicholas Galanin, and others will remain in place.

Warren Kanders Resigns as Whitney Trustee After Protests Over Tear Gas BY Robin Pogrebin and Elizabeth A. Harris, New York Times July 25, 2019

Eight Artists Withdraw Their Work From 2019 Whitney Biennial [UPDATED] BY Zachary Small (Hyperallergic Media July 20, 2019)

Korakrit Arunanondchai, Meriem Bennani, Nicole Eisenman, and Nicholas Galanin say that the museum has failed to adequately respond to the Warren Kanders controversy. Following the announcement, Eddie Arroyo, Christine Sun Kim, Agustina Woodgate, and Forensic Architecture announced their withdrawal.



"Does the Whitney want to be complacent in the violence and treatment of people of color in New York City, on our shared boarders and abroad? Do these institutions exist to amplify the artists’ thoughts and perspectives while educating community? Is the Whitney able to do this and bring our community together while neglecting to speak to the violence happening now, or is this something they will proudly celebrate and show in 20 years’ time from a position they have failed to take today? Refusal to take a stand is complacency, especially when you are an American institution with so much influence and voice." Nicholas Galanin (Yéil Ya-Tseen)

Jeffrey Brown of Tonight Newshour PBS interviewing Nicholas Galanin for 'What this year's Whitney Biennial says about contemporary American art' (YouTube PBS 6/28/2019)

The wall text cites Galanin asserting that “whiteness as a construct has been used historically throughout the world to obliterate the voices and rights of generations of people and cultures regardless of complexion.” And it seems to mesh especially well with a bit of the curators’ wall text, on the show as a whole, nearby: “An emphasis on the artist’s hand suggests a rejection of the digital and the related slick, packaged presentation of the self in favor of more individualized and idiosyncratic work.”

Decolonize This Place (Official Website) "There is no safe space for profiteers of all state violence."

Beyond Inclusion by Christopher Green (Art in America 2/1/2009)

 In a public program at the Met on October 8, 2018, Tlingit artist Jackson Polys translated some of these claims. While discussing an eighteenth-century Tlingit dagger with a shamanic visage on its pommel, he invoked its status as the at.oow, or hereditary crest, of his father’s Lukaax.ádi clan. “This knife is a marker of territory, a red flag,” Polys said, noting that the proprietary story of the knife represents a territorial relationship. Between the knife and contemporary work such as Yuxweluptun’s painting of the Northwest Coast landscape there exists a two-century continuum of sovereign land claims thrashing against colonial boundaries.

through his large-scale sculpture,  We Dreamt Deaf from the perspective
of a Native Alaskan artist whose approach to land-human dynamics
closely parallels Hawaiian philosophies. Yet, the artist says We Dreamt Deaf,
implicating all of humanity in the discussion of climate change,
and the need for us to turn our attention toward the natural world.
